The mother/daughter pair performed the classic Christmas carol at a beautifully decorated Clementine Hall in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Surrounded by dimly lit candles and Christmas trees lit with white lights, Sara and Olivia delivered a goosebumps-inducing rendition of the song as they harmonized together.

Olivia Evans made her solo debut over the summer with the release of a five-song EP, however, she didn’t chose to follow in her mother’s footsteps in terms of genre. 

Olivia was inspired to release a pop/ R&B-influenced project when she first heard Beyoncé at a young age. 

“When I was 12 or 13 years old, I discovered Beyoncé and that did it for me,” Olivia explained to People. “I literally was enamored with her. I made myself learn every single one of her songs and watch everything she did.”

Olivia introduced the project with the debut track, “Of Course I Do.”

While she may have chosen to step outside the country genre with her music (for now anyway), Oliva says she does lean on her mom for musical advice. 

“The minute I would get a demo back, I would send it to mom instantly because she’s the first one I would want to hear feedback from — honest feedback,” she told People. “She was my biggest help and support during all of this.”

CMT’s A Tennessee Kind of Christmas also featured performances by Amy Grant, Billy Ray Cyrus, Clay Walker, Pam Tillis, Steve Wariner, Tracy Lawrence and Wynonna.
